Sidmouth 7 -v- Newton Abbot 1… Saturday 26th April 2014…Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played host at the main pitch at Manstone Lane & in front of first team manager Paddy Thomas showed him a wealth of talent to come in the next couple of seasons. From the start Sid played an expansive game of football on a great surface & used the width to great use. A move down the right involving Dylan King & Joe Miller resulted in Jonny Dunn heading home from Millers cross. Soon it was two when a foul on Jacob Rowe was punished with Tyler Wellman curling in the resulting free kick. Great football between Rowe, Jack de Winton, & Alister Forsyth opened up a chance for Connor Murphy who finished in style. Halftime arrived with the Sidmouth defence rarely troubled & the second half started in the same vein with Sid playing some attractive football & it wasn't long before it was four with Rowe & Alex Stone combining to set up Dunn for his second. Abbots hit back & on a rare attack scored but it was back to business with Tom Orchards pass through the middle for Murphy to score his second. It was now a race between Dunn & Murphy for their hatricks but they hadn't reckoned with skipper Jamie Newberys power at corners & after two of them Newbery scored both to put himself on a hatrick. Unfortunately for the trio there were no more goals but an outstanding performance from Sidmouth to score seven goals for the second time this season against Abbots which condemned them to relegation four years after pipping Sidmouth to the league title

Sidmouth 2 -V- Alphington 2 … Saturday 19th April 2014.. Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played host to Alphington & both sides played out a thrilling game. Sidmouth started brighter with the Midfield trio of Connor Murphy, Tyler Wellman, & Joe Miller taking control. Jonny Dunn playing a lone forward role was causing the Alphas defence all sorts of problems & with the attacking wing backs created a few good chances which were just missed or well saved. Jamie Newbery marshalled his defence to the extent that Keeper Jake Sellick had only half shots to deal with. Halftime came with the score at 0-0 & the second half started as the first with Sid doing most of the attacking, & it was from one of these attacks that u14s striker Ollie Turton was put through & he coolly shot into the corner to give Sid a deserved lead. Alpha hit back & within 5 minutes were level when a corner wasn't cleared. This knocked Sid back & Sellick had to produce a good save to stop Alpha from scoring again. Alphington then were awarded a penalty which they converted to take the lead & now it was Sid who had to hit back &, with five minutes remaining Miller was put through on goal & he rounded the keeper & slotted the ball home for a deserved equaliser. Both sides pushed for the winner but in the end a draw was a fair second half result although Sid were the better first half team.

Thorverton 2 –V- Sidmouth 2…. Tuesday 15th April 2014 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sid played away at Thorverton in midweek & like Saturday started well with good football between Tyler Wellman, Joe Miller & Jacob Rowe creating chances. From a Miller corner Skipper Jamie Newbery met it with a thumping header to open the scoring. Sid scored again from another corner this time it was met by Jonny Dunn who volleyed it into the net. Sid then conceded just before halftime to leave the score at 2-1 & second half Thors pressed for the equaliser which they got to set up a thrilling second half. Both sides had chances & Sid almost took the points when Dunns shot hit the bar, a draw in the end was a fair result although Sidmouth Shaded the first half but tired in the second with their third game in four days. Another good game for the three u14s in the side Ben Miller, Ben Gosse, & impressive Ollie Newton.

Sidmouth 3 –V- West Exe 2…. Saturday 12th April 2014 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played host to West Exe on Saturday & started very well with some good passing football involving Jacob Rowe & Tyler Wellman, on Exes first attack a mistake in the defence saw the Exe striker score with a good shot into the corner. Good link up play between u14s striker Ben Gosse & Jonny Dunn saw a weak shot from Dunn go through the keeper to equalise. Soon it was two when a good strike from range from Wellman found the net. More good football resulted in chances but no more goals were scored as the halftime whistle went. Second half started as the first with Sid playing some great football but with no end product but eventually Sid scored a good goal from Ed Doble whose shot went in off the post to put Sid 3-1 up. Exe hit back & with ten minutes left scored their second & almost scored a third when a header went just wide. Sid deserved their win & good debut from another u14s player Ollie Newton. A good footballing display but chances were missed to kill the game off

Sidmouth 3 -v- Thorverton 0… Saturday 5th April 2014… Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth & Thorverton battled well in an entertaining first half which saw the teams go in at halftime 0-0. Second half saw Tom Orchard playing as a striker open the scoring with a well taken shot into the far giving the keeper no chance, & with Connor Murphy & Tyler Wellman dominating the midfield it wasn't long before Sid scored again, Jamie Newbery volleyed goalwards from a Murphy corner & despite the efforts form the defender found its way into the net. The back three of Newbery, Dylan King, & Al Forsyth were in excellent form to deny Thors any clear chances to leave keeper Jake Sellick a quit morning. Jacob Rowe & Joe Miller worked tirelessly & when Jack de Winton was put through his shot just missed the target. The move of the match came when Forsyth found Orchard, his quick ball to Wellman who then released Jonny Dunn who crossed for Miller to smash home for a great team goal & a comfortable 3-0 victory

Sidmouth 1 –v- Exeter civil Service 4… Saturday 22nd March 2014 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played host to Civil with a depleted side & just scrapped together the bare 11 so things were going to be tough against the high flyers. Sidmouth started well with Jacob Rowe & Tyler Wellman prominent but chances were few & far between & when Civil threatened Jamie Newbery & his makeshift defence of Dylan King, Alex Stone & Ben Miller made sure That Keeper Jake Sellick had a quiet first half. Second with Civils influential Midfielder now on the pitch they began to be more dangerous & it was from one of his runs that Civil opened the scoring. Sidmouth hit back & a great exchange of passes from Rowe & Joe Miller put his brother Ben in & he finished with a great shot into the corner to level the scores. Civil came back at Sid & after a couple of missed tackles they went back in front but Sidmouth didn't drop their head after a good run from Rowe resulting in Rowe & Ben Miller were presented with an open goal but with both players hesitating for each other to score the chance was gone & Civil cleared. Late on Civil scored two more as the 11 Sidmouth players tired & the final scoreline didn't reflect the game. Rowe & Newbery were the stand out players but all 11 players put in a real Shift.

Broadclyst 2 -V- Sidmouth 3… Saturday 15th March 2014 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played away at Broadclyst with the bare 11 players & on a hard bumpy surface against the wind & slope Sid, surprisingly started the better side with some slick passing between Jack de Winton, Jacob Rowe & Tyler Wellman. Clyst with their more direct approach were kept well under control by Al Forsyth, Alex Stone, Dylan King & the "marshall" skipper Jamie Newbery made sure that Keeper Jake Sellick had a quiet first half, & with ten minutes left of the half Jonny Dunn hit a speculative shot into the top of the net to give Sid a deserved lead. Second half with the elements against them it was Clyst with their long punts that looked to be the more dangerous & their star striker who never had a look in the first half had a snifter of a chance which he took with a good finish. Clyst now had their tails up & one soon became two, but Sidmouth battled back & persistence from Connor Murphy resulted in the Clyst keeper fumbling a through ball & Stone crept in at the far post to level the scores. Sidmouth pressed for the victory with Rowe at the hub of things & with the very last kick of the game the hard working Joe Miller poked in the winner. A hard earned victory for Sidmouth and a very good team performance.

Sidmouth playing their first league game in over two months starting well putting the Moors defence under pressure with some good flowing football, but their dominance didn't turn into goals with good chances being spurned. Eventually a Connor Murphy corner was met by skipper Jamie Newbery whose header went in off a deflection. Substitute Tom Orchard soon made it two after good work from Jonny Dunn, & Alex Stone. Sidmouth were totally dominant with Tyler Wellman & the influential Jacob Rowe pulling the strings but no more goals were scored when halftime arrived. Second half with the wind in their favour Moors pressed the Sidmouth defence but with Newbery, Al Forsyth, Dylan King & Keeper Jake Sellick were in superb form but, Moors did pull one back when Sid didn't clear the ball properly. Moors then were looking strong but a pass from Joe Miller found Rowe who wriggled his way through to score the decisive third goal. A vital three points for Sidmouth with everyone playing well.

Exwick Villa -v- 3 Sidmouth 1 … Saturday 30th November 2013 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played away against Villa & unlike last week started sleepily & with two errors found themselves a goal down after three minutes. Sidmouth gradually started to play some good football with Harvey Sargent, & Tyler Wellman getting a grip of the midfield & with the silky skills of Jack de Winton Sidmouth forced Villa. After the umpteenth foul on de Winton, Wellman sent in the freekick which was Met by Jamie Newbery but his header was just to high. Half time came with Sid still trailing 1-0 but with some fresh legs on in the form of Joe Miller, & Jonny Dunn Sidmouth continued to push forward & after another foul on de Winton this time Wellmans kick was met by Dunn who powered home his header to deservedly equalise, but within minutes another couple of mistakes gifted Villa with a chance which they gratefully accepted. This knocked the stuffing out of Sidmouth & in the final few minutes a dubious penalty was awarded to Villa & they ran out 3-1 winners. Villa were a very physical side but Sidmouth matched them for periods but mistakes cost them this week but de Winton was the stand out player on both sides.

Sidmouth 3 -v- Moors Youth 3…… Saturday 2nd November 2013 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played host to Moors & started brightly with Jack de Winton showing his class Sidmouth pressurised the Youth defence & from a cross Alex Stone rose to head Sidmouth into the lead. de Winton made it two after a good move involving Freddie King & Joe Miller. Sid had a couple of chances to increase their lead but Moors came back into the match & grabbed a vital goal just before halftime. It was stressed that the next goal was important but it was Moors who scored to level the match. It was now a close game with Moors very physical & when a miss hit overhead kick crept in at the far post Sidmouth had to dig deep & with ten minutes remaining Ed Doble went through to score Sidmouth’s third. The last few minutes were tense & when Jamie Newbery went on a run, only a last ditch tackle prevented him from bearing in on a one on one with the keeper. In the end a fair result but in reality two points dropped.

West Hill 0 –v- Sidmouth 18… Saturday 26th October 2013 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth playing away started brightly & scored a great goal from Connor Murphy. For the next ten -fifteen minutes West Hill came more into the game & created a couple of chances but, after Sidmouth scored their second again from Murphy it was all one way traffic & by the time halftime arrived Sidmouth were 9-0 up with Murphy hitting a hatrick. Second half started with regular keeper Jake Sellick out on pitch & he managed two goals &, with Murphy hitting another 3 goals Sidmouth completely overwhelmed their opponents with another 9 goals, although great credit to West Hill who never let their heads drop & kept going until the end. Sidmouth goalscorers were Connor Murphy 6 Freddie king 5 Harvey Sargent 3 Jake Sellick 2 Jamie Newbery 1 Joe Miller 1.

Sidmouth 1-v- Marldon 2 … Saturday 19th October 2013 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played host to arguably the best team in Devon. With a depleted squad leaving them with only two recognised defenders Sidmouth tried an unfamiliar formation 3-5-1-2 to unsettle the passing game that Marldon play, & to a degree it worked which also enabled Sidmouth to play an attacking style of football with Jack deWinton in brilliant form. Both sides created chances with close efforts but Sid were the better side in the early part of the half, & Sid took the lead when a good move starting with Jamie Newbery, to Ed Doble, to Connor Murphy & his cross was brilliantly turned into the net from deWinton. Joe Miller, & Harvey Sargent were working hard to help stand-in fullback Ben Miller when he went forward & Winger David Corominas, playing at centre back was coping well under the guidance of Newbery & Dylan King, but a shot from a Marldon forward crept into the corner to level the scores. Jake Sellick made a couple of great saves but just before the halftime whistle Sidmouths wide player let let his opponent drift past him & he scored at the near post for 2-1. Second half Sidmouth had a couple of early attacks with Todd Beanlands coming close but as the half progressed Marldon threatened more & more with Sidmouth tiring. Selleck made a great "Gordan Banks" save & then a great double save & with Newbery & King making great last ditch tackles kept the score the same at the final whistle. Marldon were the stronger side second half & a good couple of goals better then Sidmouth with Sellick outstanding but, as a whole a good team performance.

West Exe 3 Sidmouth 10 … Saturday 5th October 2013 … Match Report Paul Newbery

Sidmouth started well but Sidmouths traditional passing game was made more difficult with the long grass on the pitch, but still there were crisp football with Joe Miller, & new Spanish signing David Corominas combining well, it was David who scored the opening goal. Sid were playing excellent football with Ben Miller excelling on the right wing creating chances but a lapse in defence left the Exe forward a one on one for Exe to equalise. Exe nearly scored again with the lively forward hitting the post, this jolted Sidmouth back into life & with Tyler Wellman back on after a mouth injury alongside Harvey Sargent regained the middle of the park. Todd Beanlands was brought down outside the box & up stepped Wellman to score from the resulting free kick into the top corner. Wellman scored again from a Sargent corner & when halftime came Sid were fully in control at 3-1. Second half started as the first ended with Sidmouth dominating & it was David who scored again a fifth goal was scored when Sargent pressured the Exe defender to put in his own net. Exe hit back with a stunning shot to pull back to 5-2 but Ben miller then scored from a David cross, brother Joe scored the seventh then Sid were awarded another free kick outside the box & this time Wellman curled his kick around the wall & into the bottom corner for his first Sidmouth hatrick ( he needs to perfect his celebrations!). Skipper Jamie Newbery scored the ninth after good work from Beanlands. Exe scored a third but it was Joe miller who had the last goal to make it ten. A great team performance with a good debut from David & a happy morning for Wellman.

Sidmouth 2 –v- Cullompton 6… Saturday 28th September 2013 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth started unlike the previous week very sleepily & found themselves two goals down within ten minutes. Sidmouth gradually got into the game & from a corner Jamie Newbery headed the ball on for Connor Murphy to stab home. Newbery was winning every header but Sid failed to capitalise on any of his flicks. just before halftime Cully scored their third, but the second half started with Sid attacking but were caught on the break with a good goal to go 4-1. Sidmouth continued to attack on both flanks with Al Forsyth & Joe Miller prominent & it was Miller who slipped the ball through to Newbery who finished well into the bottom corner. Sidmouth were now dominant with Harvey Sargent controlling the middle of the park & Ed Doble was put through one on one but the keeper saved, two more chances were saved & Cullompton hit Sidmouth who only had two defenders Dylan King & Jonny Surtees, with two quick counter attack goals to leave the final score 6-2 in Cullomptons favour. The scoreline didn't reflect the game in which large parts of it Sidmouth were on top, but goals win matches & Sidmouth rued those missed chances at 4-2.

Newton Abbott 1 -v- Sidmouth 7 … Saturday 21st September 2013 – Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth travelled to their long time rivals & produced their best football this season. The game started with both teams testing each other’s defence but it was Sidmouth who gradually took control & with some slick movement opened the scoring through Jonny Dunn. Great pressure from Connor Murphy resulted in the keepers clearance cannoning off Murphy to give Sid a 2-0 advantage. Again pressure from Joe Miller resulting in the ball coming off the post for Harvey Sargent to make it 3-0, & with Sargent & Tyler Wellman dominating the midfield Sid went into the halftime break fully deserved of their lead. The second half started as the first ended with Sidmouth dominant & should of scored two more, but after ten minutes Murphy hit a sweet shot into the corner of the net for his second & Sidmouths fourth. This was quickly followed by the fifth from outside of the box from Roel Ruigrok. More good play from Alister Forsyth resulted in a good ball to Ed Doble who rifled the ball into the net for number 6. All this time the defence of Tom Orchard, Dylan King, Jamie Newbery & Jonny Surtees made sure that keeper Jake Sellick had a quiet morning. The final goal was scored by birthday boy & Skipper Jamie Newbery with a fine header from a corner. With the last kick off the game Abbots had a consolation goal but they were completely out played by a confident & well organised Sidmouth team with everyone playing a well.

Sidmouth 6 -v- Woolwell 0 ... (Quarter Final) ... Sunday 2nd February 2014 ... Match Report Jon Miller

Sidmouth Town Under 15s made it through to the semi-finals of the Devon Cup in convincing style; but not without help from the gods, great support on the touchline and hours of work from the groundsman. Without a match since November and at the fourth time of asking, the match went ahead but only because of a break in the rain and hours of effort by Paul Newbery, making the pitch playable.
Paul’s efforts were well rewarded by one of the best performances seen by the Sidmouth side. Their skill, passing and movement dumbed the Plymouth visitors, keeping them to just a handful of shots throughout the game.
Sidmouth controlled the game from the first whistle. Winger Alex Stone played Tyler Wellman in on the edge of the box, Wellman craftily guiding the ball over the keeper for the first. Against the run of play Sidmouth gave away a soft penalty but keeper Jake Sellick blocked the spot kick with his only save of the game.
Then with arguably the goal of the season so far, the tricky Al Forsyth ran through two challenges before passing to Jack de Winton, with two megs and riding four challenging he swept the ball into the top corner from the edge of the box.
Sidmouth were warned of complacency entering the second half but quickly killed the game. Good link up play by Ben Miller and Roel Ruigrok forced back the guests back with Joe Miller fortunate to score straight from an in-swinging corner. To Woolwell’s credit they kept going and enjoyed the momentum for 15 minutes before they conceded another corner. Taker Joe Miller was challenged to repeat his goal scoring antics, which he duly did shaping the ball directly in to the top far corner of the goal. Unfortunately, outstanding captain Jamie Newbery clashed heads attacking the corner and had to retire from the game.
Man of the match Jonny Dunn, who played the lone striker role to perfection, threaded through to Miller for his hatrick before the lively Connor Murphy slid Ed Doble through for a classy sixth. Sidmouth were strong defensively throughout with Dylan King, Jonny Surtees and Tom Orchard providing an impenetrable line.
Sidmouth roll on to their third consecutive County Cup semi-final, facing Alphington away this weekend, weather permitting. If they can repeat the performance and desire shown in this game, they have every chance of making the April 10th final.

Sidmouth 3 -v- Marine Academy Plymouth 0 … Sunday 25th November 2013 …. Match Report Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played host to M.A.P in a re run of last year’s u14s cup final in which Marine totally dominated a one sided final so, feelings of a tough cup tie were hard felt by the Sidmouth players & supporters alike. It was stressed at the start that Sid needed to go hard at Marine to knock them off their stride & take their chances when presented. Sidmouth started at a high tempo & got a dream start when Sid forced a corner, & from Connor Murphy’s kick Skipper Jamie Newbery opened his body to powerfully strike into the far corner to put Sid 1-0 up. 5 minutes later a free kick from Freddie King was parried by the keeper & Jack de Winton followed up to score Sidmouths second. Marine rallied but Sidmouths defence of Newbery, Dylan King, Jonny Surtees, & Alister Forsyth repelled the Marine forwards. Sidmouth came back with Joe Miller, Alex Stone, & Tyler Wellman getting a grip of the Midfield, de Winton went through & shot & a defender handballed in the penalty area but, unfortunately the resulting penalty was missed. This sprang Marine back into life & forced Sidmouth back with keeper Jake Sellick making some great saves. From a corner Newbery chucked himself at the ball to deflect the ball onto the bar, & with halftime arriving Sidmouth were fortunate to hold their two goal advantage. Second half Sid started with a couple of fresh players, Todd Beanlands, Ben Miller, & Ed Doble which kept the momentum going & the early part of the half was an even affair then King sent Jonny Dunn away & his first time shot flew into the back of the net to give Sid a three goal cushion. Marine showed the class of the great team they are to come back strong at Sid but with another fresh pair of legs in Tom Orchard Sidmouth defended well with Sellick in outstanding form to finish the game in a comfortable 3-0 victory. Three times these two sides have played each other in the Devon cup with Sidmouth winning twice but Marine being the cup holders, & this is most probably Sidmouths finest performance in the last 3 years. Maybe a favourable draw would be nice for Sid in the quarter-final.

Sidmouth 2 –V- Newton Abbot 0 … Saturday 12th October 2014 … Match Report Paul Newbery

Sidmouth started their quest for a third time lucky County Cup win with a 2nd round victory against their fierce rivals Newton Abbot. Sidmouth played some great passing football with Dylan King & Joe Miller combining well along the right flank to create some good openings but found the Abbots keeper in great form, but he could do nothing to prevent Connor Murphy’s great shot to put Sidmouth one up. Abbots came back & created a couple of chances themselves, but just before halftime Freddie King scored Sidmouths second. Second half was more of an even affair with Harvey Sargent, & Tyler Wellman driving Sidmouth forward, & when Abbotts were more involved in the latter part of the game Sidmouths defence of Jonny Surtees, Al Forsyth, Dylan King, & Skipper Jamie Newbery were outstanding & determined to keep a clean sheet. A good 2-0 victory against a good Abbots side & now Sidmouth wait for a hopefully home 3rd round tie.

Sidmouth 3 –v- Colyton 2… Final of President’s Cup … Friday 16th May 2014 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played their final East Devon League game on Friday evening in a Presidents cup final which was played at Seaton. Sidmouth only had the bare 11 players due to injury & unavailability’s & was slow to start. Colytons ploy of pumping the ball forward, were causing the defence problems & on 15 minutes Colyton took the lead. Sidmouth tried to get back into the game & with Jack Harwood & Joe Miller chasing everything Sidmouth started to create a few openings, but when halftime arrived Sidmouth still found themselves a goal down. It was stressed that if Sid could raise their game that the one goal advantage Colyton enjoyed could still be overtaken but it was Colyton who came out the stronger & penned Sidmouth in their own half but, the defence of Tom Orchard, Alister Forsyth, Matt Jones, & skipper Jamie Newbery along with Keeper Henry Bartlett kept Colyton at bay. Colyton got a lucky break when the ball wasn't cleared & a cross came in & sailed into the top corner. Colyton had their tails up & Sidmouth looked to be beaten but a ball from Newbery set Freddie King away & the Colyton keeper handled outside the area to give Sid a free kick. Kings freekick wasn't the best kick in the world but it crept into the net to give Sidmouth a lifeline. The next 15 minutes Sidmouth woke up & played some great football & they squared the tie up when Kings mishit shot again found the net. Sidmouth were now rampant &with five minutes remaining & at the third attempt Jonny Dunns fierce shot found the net to give Sidmouth the lead. The tireless Jack West then played a great ball into the path of Miller but his shot missed the target. & when the final whistle went Sidmouth had completed a remarkable come back to win the cup. A great second half performance from the tired 11 players, who in the end, probably deserved the win although Colyton provided a great final. Sidmouth have completed this season a League & Cup double & have now won everything that they have played in the East Devon League. Well done to all the players this season it’s been a great way to go out on a high

Wellman Cup Semi-Final ….Seaton 5 –V- Sidmouth 0 … Sunday 13th April 2014 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth were made to play away by the league at Seaton in a cup semi-final with only 10 players & on a very warm morning & against a good Seaton side with a full team plus substitutes were never in the contest but at least they enjoyed themselves with players changing positions. Sidmouth were depleted because of the easter holidays & again had to forfeit their league game in midweek against Honiton because of the same reason & inflexibility of the league

Wellman Cup Quarter-Final ... Colyton 0 -V- Sidmouth 1... Sunday 30th March 2014... Match Report Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played away at Colyton & on a bright & sunny morning& with the clocks going forward started like they were still in bed! Gradually they woke up & started to play some good passing football. Midway through the half good move involving Joe Miller, & Connor Murphy who the passed inside for Jack de Winton to shoot into the bottom corner to open the scoring. Colyton hit back & only a good save from keeper Henry Bartlett prevented Colyton from equalising. Second half there were a few chances for Sidmouth but the defence of Sidmouth Matt Jones, Al Forsyth, Matt Bray, Tom Orchard, & Skipper Jamie Newbery were outstanding in keeping Colyton out & setting up a semi-final this week against Seaton

Presidents Cup Semi-Final .... Honiton 1 –v- Sidmouth 1 aet Sidmouth won on penalties 4-1….Sunday 23rd March 2014… Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth travelled to play Honiton for the third week in a row & as Saturday had the bare 11 & no regular Keeper. For the first ten minutes Honiton were in the ascendancy but gradually Sidmouth got into the game & after twenty minutes Joe Miller sent Connor Murphy away & he finished with a great strike into the corner to put Sid 1-0 up. Honiton hit back but with the tremendous back four of Tom Orchard, Matt Jones, Al Forsyth & skipper Jamie Newbery, repelled all of the oppositions attacks but five minutes from halftime stand-in keeper Jack Harwood was beaten for Honiton to tie up the game. Second Sid changed keepers with Harwood out & Joe Miller in & Honiton pushed early for the second goal but, Sidmouth held firm & they started to create a couple of chances. Ben Miller sent Murphy away & only a good save from the Honiton keeper kept him out Jack West was put through by Joe Buckland & again the Honiton keeper came to the rescue. Full time came with no further goals so extra time loomed & it was Sidmouth who were the more attacking with Harwood & Alex Stone prominent all the while the defence were keeping Miller with just through balls to deal. Extra time over with no goals so the dreaded penalty shootout, Sid lost the toss & were asked to go first Newbery made it 1-0, Honiton equalised 1-1, Murphy scores 2-1, Honiton Missed! Ice cool Stone scored 3-1, Honiton missed! Now it was Honiton school pupil Forsyth to send his class mates out which he duly did to put Sid in the final 4-1. A dreadful way to settle a game but the 11 players of Sidmouth thoroughly deserved in what was there best performance of the season well done lads you deserved it!

Honiton 2 –V- Sidmouth 5… Sunday 16th March 2014 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth played away at Honiton in a league & unlike last week’s encounter were totally focused & took the lead when Jack de Winton sent Connor Murphy away & he finished with a good shot into the corner. Murphy soon made it two when he got on the end of another through ball this time from Joe Miller. Murphy was rampant & was unlucky not to score again but his shot hit the post. Just before halftime Honiton did pull a goal back but, after the break Sidmouth played some great football with Jack Harwood prominent & Sid were close again when Jack West closed the keeper down but Honiton scrambled it away, eventually Sid scored their third again through Murphy but Honiton refused to lie down & only a good save from Henry Bartlett kept them out. Honiton made the game interesting going into the last fifteen minutes with a strike outside the box to make it 3-2 but Sidmouth had too much class on the day & scored two more through the very impressive Murphy too end the game with all five Sidmouth goals. This win confirms that Sidmouth are the East Devon League champions with nine wins out of nine. A great performance from the team, & a 5 star 5 goal day for Murphy.

Sidmouth 0 -v- Honiton 7… Sunday 9th March 2014 … Match Report by Paul Newbery

Sidmouth came crashing down to earth with this defeat in a J G Memorial cup semi-final. It was probably the worst display ever for the Sunday side, Honiton deserved their win but they have the chance to readdress the result in the next two weeks as they play Honiton firstly in the league & then another cup semi-final

Sidmouth 3 Honiton 2… Sunday 6th November 2013 … Match Report by Jo Newbery

Sidmouth played their close rivals Honiton on Sunday & produced a classic encounter. Sidmouth started brightest & tested the Honiton defence; soon Sidmouth took the lead when Connor Murphy shot smartly into the net after a good passing move. Todd Beanlands on his Sidmouth debut was causing his Honiton schoolmates all sorts of problems with his pace & skill & it was after one of his runs & good pass enabled Jack Harwood to volley into the net to give Sidmouth a two goal advantage. Joe & Ben Miller combined to give Beanlands a chance but his shot went over the bar. All this while the back four of Tom Orchard, Jamie Newbery, Al Forsyth, & Matt Jones blunted all of the Honiton attacks leaving keeper Henry Bartlett virtually a spectator. Halftime came with Sidmouth dominant but it was impressed that Honiton would have a spell of getting back into the game & the next goal was important. Second half started with Sidmouth pressing forward but Honiton got back into the game with a goal & pressed to score again which they did with 15 minutes left to tie the scores at 2-2. The next 15 minutes was an absorbing game of Football with first Honiton & then Sidmouth creating chances, then with 10 minutes to go Harwood went through & as the keeper came off his line he lifted the ball over him only to see it hit the bar & come back for the defender to clear. With 6 minutes remaining a great ball from Murphy found Harwood & this time he wasn't to be denied with a left foot shot into the top corner to give Sidmouth the lead. Bartlett in the Sidmouth goal made a terrific save before Beanlands bore down on goal But the Honiton keeper bravely denied him. The final whistle went with Sidmouth claiming a vital victory with Forsyth, Orchard, Newbery, & Beanlands outstanding. A good result for the Honiton lads in the Sidmouth team!
